79.5/100 – Whisky Bible 2014

Although Ralfy (of www.ralfy.com) hasn’t reviewed the 10yo Jura, and probably never will, he does discuss it in his review of the 18yo version here. His view is that Jura whisky gets better with age, and that 10yo is simply too young. Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible has very little to say about the 10yo, concluding with “still miles short of where you might hope it to be”. His rating of 79.5/100 is “average and usually pleasant though sometimes flawed”.

Given how frequently the Jura 10yo is discounted in the supermarkets from a low price to something even lower, it’s understandable that this malt has as reputation for being cheap and cheerful. Saying that, we’re all individuals and BeerGogglesReviews really enjoys the 10yo in his YouTube review here. The 10yo also gets reasonably good marks from the Malt Maniacs, which leaves me wanting to try it. Which side of the fence will I find myself sitting on? And what about you?
